Post subject: How do you clean baby's ears?
Hi all

I'm totally stuck. Isaac has loads of waxy build up in one of his ears, and I've got no idea how to go about cleaning it out! I'm terrified of using cotton buds, so I got some of the safety buds, but they look like they will just push the wax in further. Anyone have any tips?

Thanks
Anna

im scared to use cotton buds too just in case he moves when im doing it..so i use a piece of cotton wool with some warm water, i just pull it out into a point and put it in and wobble it about, normally works ok, if theres wax too far in itend to leave it, i dont like to fiddle to much inside little mans ears..

I use cotton buds..... as long as u r careful and do it wen they are at the calmest time of day, u should be fine. I dont stick it rite in his ear i just gently wipe round to give em a bit of a clean.

Sorry I dont know the name of the product but it comes in a wee squirty thing that washes babies ear wax out. Im lucky Hunter doesnt get ear wax so I dont have the product here. Ive always been told never to stick anything is babies ears thats smaller than your elbow!!! Laughing I bet you havent heard that one before Very Happy
